The Steadings will complement and expand the existing provision in Cirencester providing new facilities for all residents and visitors to the local area.
The masterplan seeks to consolidate a range of activities and services at the Neighbourhood Centre in its central location, including retail, a GP surgery, a multi-purpose community hall, bus stops, and the school. Sports, health and fitness facilities are proposed a short distance to the south of the square.
Allotments are shown a short distance to the east, enabling the potential for on-site food production and food education. The square itself would provide opportunities for occasional events or celebrations, furthering its role as a point of community focus and interaction.
